Decluttering part 1 – Burda Magazines – All these memories

From time to time it is good to declutter my sewing atelier and the office.

This time I decided to make some order in books and magazines.

When moving from Poland to the Netherlands I took with me my collection of Burda magazines from 80’s – 90’s. Well, you never know. Besides I have made so many garments based on the patterns from Burda that it could be useful.

Hmmm…  once in a box – they stayed in the box.

When I open the box it was as opening a time capsule – so many memories. Good one!

It appeared a real treasure – I even came across few patterns I might to use to make some garments soon.

Decluttering is a very hard job which I could not do without my helping hand – Bolle.

Anyway – I picked up few magazines and the rest put back in the box.

No, I am not yet ready to say good bye to them so I found for them a nice place in the attic.

Haute Couture by Martin, Richard and Harold Koda in MET

When browsing through the Metropolitan Museum of Art website I came across this stunning book – Haute Couture by Martin Richard and Harold Koda.

You are not only able to look inside this fabulous book but print as free PDF.

Isn’t it fabulous! ENJOY!

Haute Couture by Martin, Richard and Harold Koda

This is a survey of the history of haute couture, from the formation of the House of Worth in mid-19th-century Paris to the major designers of the present day. The book focuses on the highly skilled crafts that are essential to the production of haute couture. Separate chapters examine tailoring techniques and finishes, weaving, draping, and the intricate decoration produced by embroiderers, feather-makers, and other craftspeople on whom couturiers rely for the execution of their ideas.

Ignite your creativity – Be inspired!
